new spammers

feel free to report them here instead of using the report-function...which sends an email to Mods for Every report
( MAINLY for Messaging spam on your profiles, or if they PM you;
we'll see spam threads easily enough )

all we need is your say-so if it's a profile-message (we can see those);
and the perp's name if it's a PM

Re: new spammers

^ OK/TY/

@badhac , did you mean just as a message on your profile page or ALSO a PM?

we Mods can't do anything about PM's received...other BAN the perp
tho
(& I haven't seen anything like this personally)
wonder *IF* a PM was actually threatening or obscene, if VerticalScope would take any steps towards prosecution?

Re: new spammers

I don't think I've been personally spammed, but I sure have seen all of the posts from them that have appeared ... yikes.
